Last weekend's storms brought in big rains, big wind, and big birds. As of today, the dike trail is submerged in chest deep water and the parking lot and Edge Trail have assumed their spring-time role as the river frontage. The Black Duck Trail is just that, and at dusk a muskrat was swimming circles around the legs of the kiosk.
Quite a contrast from last year at this time.
